Gary Gross catches the Minnesota Democratic Party (called the DFL here in the Frozone) in a moment of rare honesty. Cy Thao, a DFL member of the state Legislature, explained his party's philosophy at a committee hearing yesterday:
“When you guys win, you get to keep your money. When we win, we take your money.”
That was Thao's explanation for how the DFL would raise the money to pay for its slate of new government programs. At least it was an honest answer.
